Guests are always welcome FREE of charge and will not need to participate in the meeting unless they really wish to do so. Membership in Chamber Toastmasters Club is open to everyone.
Each meeting follows a structured agenda and is at the same time unique. The atmosphere is both joyful and business-like.
Every regular meeting consists of three parts:
- Prepared speeches: 2-3 members deliver their projects, 5-7 min each;
- Improvised Speeches Session: an Improvised Speeches Master addresses a few questions to the audience; speakers are chosen randomly and are given 2 minutes to make an impromptu speech on a suggested topic;
- Evaluation: all speakers receive feedback from more experienced club members.
